She recently gushed about her rumoured X Factor beau George Shelley, revealing they are 'in sync with one another', fuelling they are in fact an item.
And now 16-year-old Ella Henderson has confirmed the romance by walking along hand-in-hand with the Union J bandmember.
The couple were spotted walking along a London street clutching hands before they then jetted off to Disneyland Paris together this week.

They were spotted holding hands as they made their way through the West End for a midnight stroll on their way back to the hotel they're staying in with the rest of the wannabe singers.
Both wrapped up in winter coats, George, 19, led the way as he hid his popular curly hair underneath a beanie hat.
And they looked just as cosy together on Tuesday when they took to Twitter to share snaps of themselves at Disneyland.

It was only this weekend that Ella spoke out about her romance protesting they weren't an item and stating that they were friends.

She told Fabulous magazine: 'We've got a lot in common, we're in synch
with one another. You don't come into this competition or this kind of
show to make a friend for life and stuff but with certain people I think
I've found that and its really nice.'
The sweetheart of the X Factor competition sparkled some Disney magic in Paris on Tuesday.
The 16-year-old was seen screaming with laughter as she took to a rollercoaster with the rest of Union J, who narrowly avoided leaving the competition on Sunday evening.
Ella took to the ride minus Union J's George and was seen screaming with laughter as the log flume whisked the young finalists around the park.

Jamie Hamblett, 24, Josh Cuthbert 20, Jaymi Hensley 22, all looked like they were having the time of their life as they hit the park to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
Meanwhile their bandmate George was seen taking to a rollercoaster with the notorious short wearer Caroline Flack, 33, as the pair opted for a rather more daring ride at the park.
The pair could have been filming for X Factor spin off show the Xtra Factor or they could have decided that they were more daring than the other contestants.

Wearing a grey jumper with her trademark hair loose and straight around her shoulders Ella looked like she was having a thrilling time on the ride.
Earlier her and some other finalists had donned special Disney themed outfits to pose up outside the famous Disney castle.
Ella was wearing a spotty skirt and a special pair of Minnie Mouse ears while posing up with Mickey.

Ella, 16, has previously spoken about how much she fancies Harry Styles lookalike George, but it seems that Mickey had taken a shine to the reality star.
Christopher Maloney has become public enemy number one on the X Factor after turning up late yet again to rehearsals.
The Scouser was on the receiving end of a foul mouthed rant from an under pressure show boss who called his behaviour 'f*****g unacceptable'.

Chris, 34, was hauled to one side and screamed at by executive producer Mark Sidaway who, according to reports, lost the plot as he erupted.
It didn't stop the Liverpudlian enjoying himself at Disneyland though as he posed up with Jahmene and Rylan.
After a stressful Sunday night it
appears X Factor bosses decided to treat their finalists to a short
break in the city of romance.
